How the Ambassadors Group works is indeed easy to obtain from the wiki.

To learn how the Fedora Project works is something complete different! 

This is the reason why we do not encourage Candidates to start with the 
Ambassador Group. Mentors should point new Candidates to other Groups first, to 
learn the structures and the way to contribute. 
Btw. normaly every Ambassador should contribute at least to one other Group 
within the Fedora Project!

Mapping can maybe give a snapshot of the Fedora Project in it's current state.
Clint has started something related to this.

I do not think you can learn the Fedora Project from a Book or a Manual you 
have to work in the Project and put some effort and time in exploring and 
learning.
